About Paul or Shannon Strojny

Coastal Georgia Cottages is a family owned business. We have lived at Tybee for 26 years and have been in the rental business for a long time. We enjoy what we do and like meeting people from all over the world. I'm a Captain with Savannah Fire and Emergency services and my wife is a nurse with St. joseph's/ Candler hospital. We do all the bookings, maintenance and repairs, purchasing, paperwork, marketing, and anything that goes along with that. My mother, Alicia, originally started this business and has finally decided to retire to do some things she enjoys & to travel. We, as a family, like working & being together. Our small 4 lb. yorkie, Scooter, you might say is the mascot for Coastal Georgia Cottages. You will probably see him in the courtyard from time to time; no you're not seeing a little rat - it's Scooter. He looks more like a miniature raccoon. We hope you will give us the privilege to accommodate you.

Paul or Shannon Strojny purchased this house in 1980

Why Paul or Shannon Strojny chose Coastal Georgia

We love the area and mid island location. It's nice to walk to the beach without the hassle of driving and loading your car and paying parking meters. That gets pretty expensive - usually $20 a day. Tybee is only 20 minutes from historic Savannah. I especially like River Street on the waterfront with all the quaint shops. It's a beautiful city with huge oak trees, Spanish moss & flowers. It's surely a southern town and loaded with history. Besides, this is where Paula Dean lives -YA'LL have heard of her - come try out her cooking at her restaurant or Uncle Bubba's..

What makes this house unique

Convenient walk to BEACH, swim in the pool, relax in the hot tub! Great mid island location is handy to most everything. As a matter of fact, right here in front of the house is a restaurant almost sitting on the beach which makes it handy to grab a bite to eat and have a cool drink while on the beach. The cottage is on Butler Avenue where all the parades & marathons go right in front of the house. You won't miss anything I assure you. I, too, like the fact that the Gym, Park, bike/walking routes, ice cream shop, store, & library are close to the house.

The cottage is directly across from the beach; there is a crosswalk (Ga law to stop for pedestrians at crosswalk). The lifeguard chair is visible from the your street - you are that close, but the house is not ocean view. Walk to the best restaurants on the island. Surf/Beach store just a 1/2 block away for all your beach needs, including fishing needs. Cottage is on parade route - great for parades and marathons - front row seat. The Tybee shuttle can be caught here should you so desire to catch a ride to different locations on the island without taking your car and paying meters.

Wonderful Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived, we were so in love with the decor and how clean everything was in the homes. The air conditioner was excellent, and everything was just perfect. I went weak kneed when I first saw the pool....honestly, I have never stayed anywhere that had a pool this awesome! I still daydream how happy I felt when I stayed here and the fun we had playing in that pool! They had tons of pool floaties and was GREAT! My family rented the entire home (both Turtle and Flamingo) and it was absolutely perfect since my married daughter stayed on one side with her crew, and our father-in-law stayed with my husband and I on the Turtle side. My other 2 daughters slept in Flamingo with their older sister and the babies. My girl's still talk about that vacation and how they miss the was truly a great vacation. I can honestly say that Tybee Island itself was not a place that has a lot to do, but staying at this house with the pool truly made up for the outdated beach community. The only negative things I can come up with for the house was that I had to loan some kitchenware items like spatulas because the Flamingo side did not have enough kitchen tools., and sharing the pool with the house next door. I will say that I had to swim with the neighbors only once the entire week, so it was not a big deal at all. (We stayed there in July of 2015 but the date of arrival only allowed for 2016 and up.) Thanks for a great vacation! We love your home!

Perfect Vacation Location

  • 5 of 5

The accommodations that this vacation rental offers is second to none. My husband and I chose Tybee based on recommendations from friends, but were were the lucky ones when we found this gem! It's in a perfect location and offered our very large family a great option for our vacation! Paul was over-the-top in regards to ensuring that our family was well taken care of and had everything we needed to make our time in Tybee as perfect as possible. The pool and hot tub were very well maintained and offered our family a great option when needing time away from the beach. Thanks for making our family vacation one to remember!

Turtle cottage

  • 5 of 5

The Turtle cottage was the perfect home for our family on Spring Break. It was cozy and it had everything that we needed! It is definitely the most beautifully decorated cottage we have ever seen! We love the location ( walking distance to restaurants, shops and the light house). The beach was right across the street which was super nice! The pool and the hot tub was also an added plus! The caretakers were very accommodating and just a phone call away if we needed anything! We will definitely be back and plan to bring more family and friends so we can utilize The Flamingo and The Fiddler!

Owner's Response: Very nice to know your stay with us met everyone's expectations. The location is convenient to many places and that's seems to be important when people stay at the beach ! Thank you for the compliments of the interior decor - that's let's us know that the special efforts are noticed by our customers. We enjoyed accommodating your group for such a joyous celebration and hope you come back when the weather is warmer to enjoy swimming at the beach & pool. Glad you enjoyed the hot tub. Have a great summer ! CGC

Cute cottage! Well appointed and convenient to everything; especially the beach!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time! We rented both units so the kids had their own place. Side-by-side units were very convenient. The beach is about a block away.

We strive to make our guest happy with the accommodations and we look forward to your family staying with us again in the future. Hope you & your children have a great summer and think about returning to Tybee during the summer when the children are out of school and it's warmer climate for everyone to enjoy the ocean and pool. God bless

We LOVED The Turtle and The Flamingo!

  • 5 of 5

This was my first time to Tybee Island although our traveling companions had recommended it. We started searching for a house in late winter and happened upon the cottages. We were looking for a house that would accomodate an extended family and friends vacation. These two cottages fit the bill exactly and we could not have been more pleased. Actually, it was even better than I had hoped for. Proximity to the beach is excellent and the owners bent over backwards to ensure that we had a lovely time. The cottages were spotless and well appointed and I felt like I was at home. Our Cairn Terrier went with us on vacation, so for those of you looking for a pet friendly rental, you definitely need to look here. We would definitely go back.

We continuously look for our satisfied customers to come back and we will be looking forward to your return to Tybee Island again. Yes, we have the blanket and it is on the way to you. God Bless

My family and I recently stayed at the Flamingo Cottage on Tybee. It is decorated cute, appears clean, and the location to the beach is wonderful. However, at our arrival we were greeted with 7 dead large palmetto bugs. We contacted the agent who rented the property to us and she was very helpful. She sent out an exterminator asap. He informed us that palmetto bugs are a huge problem on the island. We were unaware of this. He also informed us that at his routine visit the day before, he had left a back closet window open all night by mistake letting in these bugs. He apologized and went on his way. Feeling better, we stayed the next 3 days with no more bug problems. A hard rain occured on the 4th day. We left for the day and when we arrived that night, we were greeted with more dead roaches and 2 crawling up the walls, 1 crawling in the bedroom, and 1 crawling by the front door, all the length of your finger...eeewww. We were so creeped out and frustrated, we left that next day cutting our vacation short by 2 days. We emailed our frustrations and requested some sort of refund, but the agent would not issue any refund of any sort. She told us the bugs were out of her control and I agree with that for a couple but not 15-16. It was obviously out of hand. She also stated this had not been a problem by other renters, however we found in the guestbook a comment quoted, "Nice cottage if you don't mind a few roaches." So all in all, the Flamingo Cottage is a cute little cottage close to the beach if you don't mind roaches. WE DO and will not be returning. We take a beach vacation somewhere every year and have never had this problem!

Owner's Response: Coastal Georgia Cottages takes great pride in presenting nice, clean homes for our guest. Matter of fact, the cleanliness of our rentals seems to be the greatest compliment we receive from our guest. Insects are a part of life, that is why we have a professional exterminator spray every month for bugs; that is why you saw dead bugs. Our exterminator was prompt in responding immediately 3 different times during your stay. Due to the excessive amount of rain the entire southeast has had lately, it is not uncommon for bugs to be more of a nuisance. The exterminator searched the entire house looking for anything that even looked like a crack that could be a source of entry and corrected it. I feel confident that he left no stone unturned should there have been any place that was accessable. We had other homes rented the same week but no one complained of any bugs, but any concern of our guest is a concern of ours. You told the exterminator that you & your children had a phobia about bugs, and I do regret that you were frightened. As far as the weather----we all like to have great weather while on vacation, but I am sure we all have experienced rain from time to time on our vacations, but sighting a bug and rainy weather does not constitute a refund. I can not control the weather but I can control what's in my power and that's answering any concerns of my guest and acting promptly. Yes, we go to great lengths to make our cottages very attractive and decorative for our guest to add to their festival, "beach" vacation, thanks for the compliment.
